New Delhi: Filmmaker Shirish Kunder, who is known for his witty tweets, has yet again grabbed the headlines because of his tweet about the Lt Governor of Delhi. Due to the protests by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his party members, Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has been working from home since Monday. Amidst all the drama, the filmmaker took a hilarious dig at the Governer.
Kunder took to the micro-blogging website to ask LG Electronics if they have a service centre in Delhi, since "the LG there is not working.".@LGIndia... Do you have a service center in Delhi?
The LG there is not working. Also, not letting others work.

Although the tweet was meant to be a joke, LG electronics took it too seriously and responded to him in the way they would to any distressed customer.
They wrote, "We regret the inconvenience caused. Please DM us your contact details so that we can assist you shortly. However, LG electronics later deleted the tweet.
This hilarious Twitter exchange left the netizens in splits and they certainly couldn't believe their eyes.
Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and two ministers Gopal Rai and Satyendra Jain met Baijal and decided to stay put at his office till their three demands were accepted, including a direction to IAS officers to end their "strike" and action against officers who have struck work for "four months".
The CM tweeted from the waiting room of the LG office that a letter was handed over to Baijal but he refused to take action. Later, Baijal left his office for a pre-scheduled appointment, even as the CM and his three ministers stayed in the waiting room of the LG secretariat.
